Goudreau in 2019 was ordered into a peace bond after social media posts were made targeting the Canadian Anti-Hate Network, its board members and an Ottawa lawyer. Goudreau denied making the posts, which were attributed to him.

He also spearheaded an anti-immigration rally in Peterborough that saw hundreds gather, and that later turned into a violent confrontation. Goudreau did not make a public appearance at the event.
